Today I’m working on figuring out my computer. After a ten minute call with AppleCare, I learned how to change my Photos Library back from my external hard drive to my internal on the new computer. From there it should synch up with the iCloud and things should be easier to use.
So I’m getting the hang of importing photos from my iMac into WordPress, so that should snazz things up. In the past, I’ve had problems with pics coming in rotated or freakishly large, so please let me know in the comments if things don’t look right.
Now I’m trying to figure out justification with Block type website building. This is pretty much counter-intuitive to anything that I’ve ever worked with before, and a general pain in my ass. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. I honestly can’t see the advantage of using block formatting over the old way it was done.
But here we are.
For the most part, the iPhotos library is useless when it comes to WordPress. I have to select my pics from the albums and then upload them into WordPress. So it’s an additional step. Something that makes it pretty clean for the Mac to work is once again a multiple step process for everything else. But the good news is that I don’t have to upload pics to my Media Files gallery in Word Press every time, and I can just upload the images directly into the blog posts from my Mac. The Media Files can be used for frequently used pics, or if I am using other computers to post blogs.
Either way, I’ll have to be mindful when it comes to which pics I choose, which can actually be a good thing. ANyway, these are all just experiments for when I get my travel blog/writing/podcasting blog up and running again. I hope you have enjoyed me fumbling around with this as much as I have!
I think I am getting this figured out. Maybe…
